Another world first for Vision RT
Published data suggests that approximately 10% of patients have errors in their treatment that can be detected¹– by Cherenkov Imaging. DoseRT brings together Cherenkov Imaging with AlignRT and Horizon cameras², to monitor both beam and patient positioning in real-time.

What is Cherenkov Imaging?
During radiation therapy, Cherenkov light is emitted from the patient’s skin where the radiation beam enters or exits the body.
Cherenkov Imaging uses highly sensitive cameras, synchronized with both the linac and SGRT, to visualize this light from the patient’s skin.
